Why you’ll love these cheese and bacon turnovers

  • Quick and easy: 25 minutes only and a few easy steps are required to make these delicious turnovers.
  • Few ingredients: 4 staple ingredients are all you need for this simple recipe.
  • Meal prep friendly: You can make these turnovers ahead and store them in the fridge in an airtight container until you want to bake them.


  • Puff pastry: I love cooking from scratch but ready-rolled puff pastry is such a great time saver and therefore a key ingredient for this quick and easy recipe. Shapes and sizes tend to vary, my recipe is based on two 9×9 inch / 24x24cm sheets, cut into 8 squares in total.
  • Bacon: I recommend using streaky bacon for this recipe. Make sure the bacon rashers are thin and not too short as the bacon will shrink during baking.
  • Cheese: Grated cheddar, gouda, or edam work well for this recipe.


It’s incredible how easy this delicious snack is to make. Simply crisp up the bacon in the oven for 5 minutes. Cut the puff pastry into squares, add bacon and cheese, turn over the ends and wash with egg yolk. Bake and cool. That’s it!
